Week 53: Androgyny NY.

So as New York approaches, I thought I'd dedicate this one to a good friend of mine, Katy Wood. She's been through a lot this year and I will thoroughly miss her. The past two years spent with Katy have been an absolute blast. Most people would say "we've had our ups and downs" with close friends, but we have certainly only had ups.


This is from a set of fashion images. It shows garments that fit the style of Androgyny, designed by Claire Jones. In this photograph Katy has had her make up done and her eyebrows thickened to enhance the male/female cross-over that has been on the periphery of fashion for decades. Androgynous images pop up every now and again, but when they do they are completely centered around fashion. Consequently, I think that Claire has designed and produced an outfit that has made us question the prejudices of fashion and simultaneously made the outfit look attractive. This is why I believe she is a designer with a fantastic frame of mind.

Song listening to right now: Dual of Fates - John Williams
